Americans Would Rather Have A Gay President Than An Evangelical Christian President

Would you rather have a gay president or an evangelical Christian president? According to a brand new Wall Street Journal/NBC survey, 37 percent of Americans would have “reservations” or be “uncomfortable” with a gay president, but 44 percent of Americans would have “reservations” or be “uncomfortable” with an evangelical Christian president. This represents a massive cultural shift. Back in 2006, the same survey found that 53 percent of Americans would have “reservations” or be “uncomfortable” with a gay president. Without a doubt, the entire nation is moving to the left on social issues. Meanwhile, much of the country is becoming increasingly negative toward those that are considered to be “socially conservative”. One of the only classes of people to score even lower on the survey than evangelical Christians were leaders of the Tea Party movement. A whopping 61 percent of Americans said that they would have “reservations” or be “uncomfortable” with a president that had been a leader of the Tea Party. So is this a permanent shift? Has the United States fundamentally rejected social conservatives and their values?

When I first came across these new survey results I was rather stunned. I had known that America had been moving to the left for a long time, but I had no idea that the movement had been this dramatic. The following is an excerpt from a Huffington Post article about this new survey…

The latest WSJ/NBC poll listed a series of qualities in a potential presidential candidate and asked respondents whether they’d “be enthusiastic,” “be comfortable with,” “have some reservations about” or “be very uncomfortable with” a candidate with each of those qualities.

The results revealed that Americans are actually quite open to having a gay presidential candidate. Sixty-one percent said they would be either enthusiastic about or comfortable with a gay or lesbian candidate, while only 37 percent said they would have reservations or be uncomfortable.

By comparison, respondents were a little less comfortable with the prospect of a candidate who is an evangelical Christian. Fifty-two percent said they’d be enthusiastic about or comfortable with an evangelical Christian running for president, while 44 percent expressed some degree of hesitancy about the idea.


And of course this is just part of a larger shift to the left. In a previous article, I discussed the results of Gallup’s most recent “annual Values and Beliefs survey”. When you compare those results to the results from the same survey in 2001, you find that there has been an absolutely colossal shift in America’s values since the turn of the century. The following numbers represent the percentage of Americans that find various behaviors to be “morally acceptable”…

Sex between an unmarried man and woman

2001: 53%

2014: 66%


2001: 59%

2014: 69%

Having a baby outside of marriage

2001: 45%

2014: 58%

Gay or lesbian relations

2001: 40%

2014: 58%

Medical research using stem cells from human embryos

2001: 52%

2014: 65%


2001: 30%

2014: 33%


2001: 13%

2014: 19%

Cloning Humans

2001: 7%

2014: 13%

Is there any doubt left at this point that we are becoming a more “socially liberal” nation?

Meanwhile, animosity for those that hold “socially conservative” viewpoints continues to rise.

In previous articles, I have detailed how Bible-believing Christians are being purged out of the military and are even being labeled as “potential terrorists” in official U.S. government documents.

But it isn’t just the Obama administration that is turning on evangelical Christians. The truth is that the entire culture has become increasingly negative toward evangelical Christianity, and this is manifesting in thousands of different ways.

For example, just consider what one Christian student recently experienced in a humanities course. The following comes from an article by Kit Daniels

A humanities professor reportedly failed a Christian student for not denouncing her faith in support of Marxism, atheism and feminism.

Humanities Exam

The professor, Lance “L.J.” Russum at Polk State College in Winter Haven, Fla., allegedly gave the student four straight zeros on assignments because she refused to agree with his biased test questions which painted Christianity as false, violent and oppressive to women.

When confronted, the professor did not back down and neither did the dean of the college

“This course in no way is a challenge to anyone religious ‘faith’ because it never addresses religion from the standpoint of faith, only from philosophical/political/historical perspectives,” Rossum responded. “What you hold as a faith system is your personal belief about the gods and goddesses.”

“When you write from a faith position your writing is contrary to the BCI (Basic Course Information Catalog),” he continued. “The BCI is what I am obligated to grade you on. Your answers make it impossible for me to grade when you refuse to follow the course objectives.”

Lewis’ parents also contacted Dean Donald Painter, who reviewed the matter but said that he found the assignments to be “appropriate based on the course description and learning outcomes.”

So what is causing this enormous cultural shift that is taking place in our nation?

Personally, I am convinced that it has a lot to do with the power of the mainstream media. The average American spends about 10 hours a day using an electronic device of some sort, and approximately 90 percent of the news, information and entertainment that we get from those electronic devices is controlled by just six monolithic corporations.

The next time that you are watching a movie or a television show, pay attention to how different groups of people are being portrayed. You will notice that “socially liberal” groups are almost always painted in a positive light. On the flip side, evangelical Christians are almost always portrayed negatively.

Whatever you feed your mind consistently is what you will eventually become. And most Americans are feeding their minds with propaganda that is endlessly praising certain groups of people while constantly demonizing others groups of people.

As this continues, the environment for Bible-believing Christians in America is going to become increasingly hostile.

But that doesn’t mean that all is lost for those that believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. Even in the midst of all the chaos and all the darkness that we are going to see in future years, I believe that the greatest move of God that the world has ever seen is coming. As I recently explained, it is going to be a truly global movement that looks very different from how we “play church” today, and it is going to absolutely shock the world.

So what do you think about all of this?

Has America permanently moved to the left on social issues?

And if so, what does that mean for the future of this nation?

  1. I would like to see a change.
    I would like to see Christianity put into perspective with what we now know about the Universe. But that would require an intelligent update of the entire religion.
    I do not know if that is even possible.
    We still have ignorant people out there that believe the world is 6,000 years old.
    There is no shame in ignorance. There is shame in remaining so.
    The only way the world is 6,000 years old would be if the entire thing is a holographic universe created that way by God 6,000 years ago.
    Sort of like the holographic deck on the fictional Star Trek series.
    Heaven is not above our heads. Nor is Hell likely to be below our feet.
    Hate to break it to you this way, but the heaven above our heads is a vacuum. Not a complete vacuum, but a vacuum. No atmosphere.
    The Earth has a core that is both 10,000 degrees F. That would vaporize most everything we know about.
    Now, a lake of fire is entirely possible. Right here on the surface of America. A super volcano is out there sitting a sleep for the time being.
    Most of this vision is put down by people that thought the Earth was flat. We were the center of that Universe. So Heaven meant just that. Heaven meant arising into the clouds. Hell meant the soul submerging into the Earth in a hot place of eternal pain.
    According to the Bible, Jesus left by floating up into a cloud. Where did Jesus go? I think he floated up to that cloud and then into a space ship. I have nothing to base that on. It just seems logical. He went to be with his father in heaven. Where was that again? You are unlikely to deal with this in sermon by your local minister.

    Why is this relevant to your article? Do you want a person in control of the White House who is not firmly based in reality?

    My own belief system says no. I want someone who is highly intelligent, follows the basics of the Bible, but does not let it rule where nuclear weapons are likely to be played. I want someone with a whole lot of common sense in dealing with the rest of the world.

    Do I want someone in the White House that is Gay?

    To me that person is a member of the Devil’s side of things. So no, I do not want a Gay in the White House.
    We now know with some certainty that the Universe itself is enormous. In that Universe, our Milky Way has an enormous number of stars. There are at least 100 billion galaxies out there equal to or bigger than the MIlky Way. That is a whole lot of stars.
    And God is so big and so powerful that he has created the entire thing. At least that is my belief.
    God appears to be in conflict with Satan. So when all is said and done what happens?
    The best answer I have is I do not know where it all leads.
    What I do know says I want neither a gay president or a fundamentalist in the White House.
    I think we had prohibition where a lot of very good Christians made laws limiting our ability to drink liquor.
    It was the greatest success story for Satan in the history of our country. All because fundamentalists were in charge of everything. All because it was for our own good. The resulting fruit of that episode of American History? I think we all know the answer to that.
    I believe the Bible leaves a whole lot out of the entire picture of things. For whatever reason, it does.
    I believe that everything we see in the Bible if correctly translated is true.
    I believe we are dealing with end time prophecy. But it also says only God knows the details of what is about to occur. What we do know is that it is fated to occur. To me that is a set-up of humanity.

    Even the worst torture-bound saddists in history were given a chance to reform. I refer to the people that Jonah dealt with. He ran away for all he was worth not wanting to be drafted as God’s representative at all. They literally placed people in a fiery ant hill and allowed them to die slowly as they were literally eaten to death by insects.
    Right now I do wish we had a person in the Presidency with a good set of ethics and morality. Taking it to extremes is a recipe for disaster and it will be Satan that rules, not God right here on this planet.
    What a lot of people are looking at is not whether or not a person is gay but whether they are capable of making the right decisions as our President.

  2. THIS American wants to see NEITHER of them in the White House OR in the streets!! Religion and money are the roots of all evil. Funny, one feeds the other huh?
